At St Oswald’s Catholic Primary School, Geography is an opportunity for children to learn about a range of different places as well as their locality. The children use maps, images and artefacts to identify and describe landmarks and locations near and far. Our children start with learning about the features of their immediate environment, as well as how environments might vary from one another. They then progress to to enhance their map reading skills by describing the location of features and routes on a map. The children will be studying a variety of maps and talking about what human and physical features they can find. In Key Stage 1 and 2 we look at  extending their knowledge and understanding beyond the local area. For further information please see below:
